More Information
Almost everyone recognizes a GATLING GUN today...but when the science of "machine guns" was in its infancy, each improvement in design or firepower was hailed in the press. These news reports were usually illustrated with line drawings...and these 100-plus-year-old drawings make up the body of this notebook on the Gatling Gun, from 1863 when it first appeared, to 1917, when the last U.S. government manual was printed for the Gatling. Ten makers in five countries are covered, as are the Gatling Guns that 29 countries tested or used in some 25 different calibers. Carriages, feed devices, cartridges, manuals and implements are also described or pictured herein. Sales, inspectors and issues, some by serial number, are detailed for many purchases. For the technically minded, extracts from relevant United States patents are included. Listings of all Richard Jordan Gatling's American patents and those patents that "improved" upon his designs are also included.
